Arsenal and Chelsea look set to be among the contenders to sign £30m-rated Schalke starlet Julian Draxler this summer, along with Manchester United and Manchester City.
The German international playmaker has long been regarded as one of the best young talents in Europe, though he has had a frustrating season this year derailed by injury problems.
Still, Arsenal look set to renew their interest in the 21-year-old this summer as they seek more options in attack, though they now have a growing number of rivals for the player than when they first tried to sign him in 2013.
According to the Daily Star, Chelsea, United and City are also chasing Draxler’s signature in the upcoming transfer window, and it could be that the skillful attacking midfielder will make his way to the Premier League for next season.
£30m may seem a lot to pay for a relatively unproven player, but Draxler has long impressed at Schalke and is highly rated by his employers.
